2009 Volvo XC70 Wagon T6 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

As a satisfied owner of a '99 XC70 I purchased the '09 because of all the incentives. What a great wagon! Fast, comfortable, spacious and fun to drive. A big improvement over the "99. The 3.0 Turbo is a blast and the transmission is a seamless partner. Handling is considerably better than any SUV I tested. Considering the weight of this wagon and the horsepower, the gas mileage is fantastic (21mpg).


Favorite Features

Engine, transmission, Bliss, Park Assist, seats, space, warranty and scheduled maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

More active information (oil pressure, water temperature) on instrument cluster. Thats it!

Review

We bought the XC70 T6 to replace a Passat wagon that was totalled in a car crash- both kids inside. Not as sporty and fun as the Passat, but all of the practical features surpass it easily. The higher ground clearance is great for our winter climate, the AWD is reassuring and the T6 is great for hwy accelerations. As a family with two small kids, the cargo space is excellent and getting kids in/out is easier than in the lower Passat. Fuel economy could be better, but my kids' safety is worth it, especially after our accident. Great interior space for tall/ leggy people too.


Favorite Features

It is very practical, but also elegant. The interior fit/finish is beautiful and simple. Proves its worth on wintry roads. It's a beautiful tank and we enjoy it.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy. But don't let that stop you. It is a heavy car, which makes it a safer car- it will use up more fuel because of this.

Review

This car if very comfortable to drive. Very solidly built. Quieter and more comfortable ride than the 2006 that I really really liked. Every time I drive the thought "this is a pleasure" comes to me.


Favorite Features

The comfortable seats, the blind spot info system and the phone setup. Great luggage room and very attractive interior.


Suggested Improvements

Halogen headlights and a cross bar system like Subaru's should be standard.
